    This is my 3rd “chainsaw helmet”. Living in Minnesnowta, I’ve Heated with wood for over 25 yrs. and in that time basically worn out 2 previous helmets, so I guess this isn’t my 1st rodeo with Chainsaw helmets. This new one came “knocked down” – but was easy to assemble. Just required slipping engineered plastic connections into the right slots until the SNAP into place. Directions were sufficient (Far BETTER than those “ikea-style” hieroglyphics’ that some Mfg’s use!) Ear muffs fit comfortably and do an adequate job of silencing noise. The helmet suspension system has multiple mounting positions that allow one to best choose the size range they need to fit their specific melon. The ratcheting dial on the back allows for finer settings, say between wearing a cap in cooler weather or not. Face protection screen fits easily and is simple to add or remove, so you CAN use the provided clear plastic shield. (which I set aside for potential use with angle grinders, etc. – as it’s super EZ to swap out!) As I’m going to use my helmet in “cooler weather” which would foster fogging, I opted for the screen. Note: I’ve really appreciated the drop-down style screen over the years, as sometimes you need to walk thru branches and brush carrying your saw, etc. which means you can’t use your hands to push your way thru. Dropping that screen down allows you to kind of put your head down and walk right thru the limbs, etc. The BRIGHT orange/red color is VERY vibrant- making you and your helmet very visible in the deepest woods. Great product so far and will suggest to others.

    This is essential safety equipment for using a pole saw or any other outdoor power equipment that throws chips and debris and has a decibel rating in the damaging range. Is it the sexiest safety system, not at all! If you wanna look cool while cutting stuff then go get a Stihl pro or husqvarna system. However, if you want to have head, ear, and face protection at a reasonable cost for a weekend warrior like me, then this is he way to go. It is ANSI type 1 class C approved head protection, 22dB noise reduction, dial adjustable 6 point suspension system, removeable sweat band, and comes with both a clear poly carb shield and a wire mesh shield for use with high speed cutting tools. The system fits over my 3M tinted safety glasses for an added layer of protection (Stihl and husqvarna both recommend using additional safety glasses under their system). The only drawback I see is that it may be difficult to obtain replacement parts. I don’t feel that reason alone justifies me purchasing a Stihl or other brand at a much higher cost. Perhaps if I used this more than an hour or two a week I may need to have something with readily available replacement parts, but I don’t see that being a problem. Others have commented on wanting to replace the sweat band, and not being able to find them easily. Solution: get a small amount of headliner material from an upholstery supplier, use your existing sweat band as a template, and cut out a replacement. It should work: I did that when I could not find a replacement sweat band for my bike helmet and it worked better than the originals.Summary: if you need a pro quality everyday wear professional protection system look at the ones made by Stihl and Husqvarna, etc. However, if you are a weekend warrior like me pick this system up and go get your work done!

    I mostly wanted this helmet for weed trimming – things usually fly into my eyes when doing this! Also: I was concerned about saving my hearing (ear protection) and maybe having heat/sweating protection when wearing a hat. The video in the ad was great, but some things were not touched on or unclear to me. Definitely watch video and read instructions – saves frustration. Putting the helmet liner went great. I a little fuzzy about what came next = ear muffs (when attached they point to the rear. Next is the visor frame – goes into the ear muff frame. Then comes the visor (watch that the swivel clips to hold the visor twists). The short end of the clip twists toward the top [finally up and down] (took me awhile to figure that out). I was VERY IMPRESSED with the noise reduction (a worry of mine). [A different helmet said reduced sound a little more than the TR, but the TR worked great for me! VERY satisfied. The twist knob for the helmet liner kept the helmet on pretty well (when moving the ear muffs, I did this one at a time AND I used one hand to hold helmet on head = worked great for me this way). The air vents on top of the helmet – I’d recommend making them bigger – my head still sweated pretty much – was a help, but would be nice with more air flow. A final recommendation would be to offer replacement head bands as accessory. They did catch the sweat BUT, they are going to be fragrant pretty quick. Need a replacement while old one is washed. All in all I would be another one for myself any time or my sons/daughter. The helmet really would be great for forestry work – would protect from falling limbs. I usually wear a baseball hat and shooting ear muffs – so of course the helmet is heavier but I didn’t notice this when working. Make sure to take 2 protective films of plastic visor. If the visor is green and cloudy – you forgot the 2nd film – happened to me. Hope this helps. Remember – safety first!

    So Im tall and a bit clumsy (like a spider on roller skates) but anyhow -I have been doing a ton of tree trimming this fall and I goofed one day and didn’t put on safety glasses because they fall off and fog up so much. So long story short – I put my eye out / Nothing perm just 3 weeks of a bandage and a minor scar removal surgery.So here I go again but this time taking precautions! I found this and thought Ill give it a try – HOLLY SMOKE! I love it! I would have thought it was going to be heavy -hot and cumbersome but not at all – Very comfortable to wear! The ear protectors are super soft and really keep the helmet on my head and block out nearly all noise, I have huge ears so soft is a big concern. I wear little head phones under them connected to my MP3 player I just taped to the top inside of helmet. Works Great! The screen is so fine but yet I get plenty of breeze – doesn’t block my view at all – and yesterday which triggered the review I was chainsawing away on limbs 10″ above my head and the oil cap off chain saw came off, OIL EVERYWHERE. All over me head to toe – all over the screen AND NOT A DROP ON MY FACE! The screen protected my face against the falling oil.

    We own 5 acres of forested property in upstate New York. For Christmas I got a chainsaw to help save money by cleaning up the trees myself. I’m a smart guy and read all of the instructions and they stress using safety gear.I shopped around and this helmet was about half the price of a name brand helmet and seemed identical but without the logo.When it arrived the box seemed small and my first thought was, “that’s why it was so inexpensive – it’s child-size!” No, the helmet is adult-sized and arrived packed tightly. The assembly instructions were lacking (only covering part of the assembly) but I got it all assembled by looking at the photos on the package. (There’s the helmet and harness, the face shield, and the ear muffs that all need to be put together.)I cut down my first two trees yesterday and the helmet performed better than I expected. The head harness inside uses a knob ratchet, which is quite convenient and was a luxury I didn’t expect at this price point. The ear muffs blocked way more sound than my ear plugs and both them and the helmet are legitimately safety rated – again, not kids stuff.All in all, I felt compelled to tell of my good fortune in finding this product at this price!

    I needed a second one so I will give a review on the first one I bought a couple years ago. I liked it enough to get a second one. I use it a lot for whipping and chainsaw work mainly. Not full time but it gets a lot of use. The foam pad on the forehead wears out but that’s fine. The screen has been fantastic, for rocks pebbles dirt when whipping tough area around the pond and in the woods. It definitely protects the face. The helmet definitely comes in handy. Smacked by some light branches and it’s saved me. (Not like an aluminum helmet but this does great). Earmuffs do a fine job lowering the decibels and still holding up. The stihl brand may be tighter to the face and wrap the face better but the TR is just fine. Again, this is why I ordered a second one. Great product and I will buy again if I ever need to.It has a clear visor as well but I’ve never used it. It seems to be quality material as well and changing it back and forth is very simple.

    I really like this setup. Others have complained about durability, but I don’t abuse my gear. What I can say, is that I wore this continuously for 8 hours on two separate occasions over a sweat shirt hoodie. I replaced the screen mesh with a plastic shield that it comes with. I did not use additional eye protection underneath. The helmet and shield seal around the brim, limiting sawdust from above the head. I used a separately purchased respirator dust mask underneath as well. I use it for woodturning, chainsaw use and power carving. I will not do any of those 3 things without it.

    I am safety oriented but have ran a chainsaw for 40 years with only gloves and safety glass. Well this summer my cousin that also grew up using a chainsaw for 50 years had a chainsaw kick back and it killed him. After this I bought this reluctantly. surprisingly I love it. I can see perfectly without the bothersome glasses. The ear muffs well I should have used them years ago. i don’t knock my head on branches. Seriously this is a great deal and very comfortable and safe. I use it every time I fire up the saw and have even used it now with the table saw and other things. Benefit of the muffs other than protecting the hearing is that I can ignore the wife and she just thinks I cant hear her! Priceless!

    Seeing how this set is so inexpensive, I wasn’t expecting too much from it. But once it arrived, I can’t believe how nice it is for the money! It is not a high-dollar set, for sure, but it does seem to be quite nice for the price. I like the orange coloring. The suspension part inside the helmet tightens and loosens very easily using the dial at the back. Very impressed the suspension has sweat pads. Nice! There were no strong odors from the plastics. The earmuffs are adjustable for your head and also swing out of the way if you don’t want them on your ears. It comes with two shields, a thin mesh metal and a clear solid plastic. For the plastic, be sure to remove the protective film from BOTH sides! I bought this for weedeating a part of our yard that has a lot of poison ivy, poison oak, and poison sumac. Hopefully, the clear shield will help keep those from being splattered on my face. If I’m going to be cutting branches or bushes, I’ll pop the mesh visor on to allow for more airflow. They are very easy to swap out. Initially, I can’t believe how impressed I am with this set for the price. Hopefully, it will prove to be durable as well.
